of days. michael tomasky writing quote maybe he's just sick of being the president. how else to explain that sorry debate? he also seuuses the convention speech as an example. chris kofinis, what do you make of the argument? that perhaps the president might be over being president? >> well, i don't believe that. one i don't believe it and i can't believe it. i mean i listen to the reality here is i think the president had a bad night. that happens, in elections, it just the reality. he had a bad night on the wrong night. and now there's two more debates. in the stakes i think are huge. on both candidates. and neither one can afford, you know, a let-down. the president's strategy is really simple, it's not always easy to execute because you're debating another person who is not always going to play along with your strategy. but he's got to go in there and have a full-throated defense of his presidency. your opponent is not going do make that defense. your opponent is going to try to tear your apart. >> you're right, chris. >> you have to use your statistics and argument to make your case
